I note on the Natural England condition statement that they use the  phrase 
"Residual Waterway", so perhaps we can make use of something like  

Jonathan Briggs did a nice article on the  ecology of the Montgomery Canal in 
British Wildlife a few years ago (BW,  17:401-410, 2006 IIRC).

From WW's most recent article on the Cromford:

And indeed, since 2005 (WW January 2006), FCC do run occasional horse-drawn
boat trips there. (Unpowered boats obviously create less disturbance to
vegetation in the channel - similar reasoning is behind the 2mph limit on a
stretch of the Montgomery IIRC.)

So the correct way to tag the stretch from Ambergate to Cromford would be
something indicating horse-drawn boats yes, powered boats no. I'll leave it
to the wikifiddlers to decide what key/value pair works for that. :)
